Look closely when watching the new WWI drama
Testament of Youth, starring Alicia Vikander and
Kit Harington, and you might see an iPhone.
"There s an iPhone dropped in the mud. Watch
out for that," Harington said in a recent interview.
"It was (director) James Kent s (phone)!" Vikander
The film, now playing in limited release, is based
on the 1933 memoir by Vera Brittain. It follows Vikan-
der as Vera, when the young men in her life, including
her lover (played by Harington), go off to war. Vera
puts aside her dreams of higher education to nurse
Harington, who also stars in HBO s Game of
Thrones, and Vikander say they were profoundly
affected by the story.
Vikander and Harington talked about their work
in recent interviews.
Had you met prior to making this film?
Harington: We met on a movie called Seventh
Son, which we filmed like three or four years ago,
but didn t share a single scene in that. I popped my
clogs before she even shows up, so we went out to
dinner and became friends.
Vikander: When you know somebody at least a
little it s such a big step forward because you already
have kind of, well, trust between each other which
is really what s needed for both (of you) to feel fine
to make mistakes or try new things out and you
know you kind of have a certain language of trying
to communicate while working.
Vikander:I have a harder time listening to myself
What do you get when you take one
of the year s biggest box office hits---
Fifty Shades of Grey---and turn it over
to funny man Marlon Wayans?
Christian Grey is turning into Chris-
tian Black in Wayans spoof Fifty Shades
of Black, which has been picked up by
Open Road Films for release next Jan-
Wayans, known for writing and star-
ring in cinematic sendups like White
Chicks and his Scary Movie films, says
he thought it would be funny to do a
comedic take on the erotic film, which
is based on the novel of the same name
"What if Christian Grey was black
and he was rich but you kind of know
how he got his money, it s kind of shady
and he s a really bad lover? I mean it s
kind of similar to the movie," Wayans
said with a laugh.
"They had all these scenes and I was
like, a funny version of this and a funny
version of that and before you knew it
we had a really funny script."
He was interviewed Thursday while
promoting the summer competition
TV series he s hosting, I Can Do That,
which airs Tuesdays on NBC.
Wayans will star and co-write the
Fifty Shades spoof with longtime col-
laborator Rick Alvarez. The film will
be directed by Michael Tiddes, who
helmed both of Wayans Haunted
House movies. He is still working on
his female lead but says Fifty Shades
of Black will likely feature faces that
fans have seen in his other films, such
as Affion Crockett and Cedrick the
But don t expect any "red room of
pain" in the Wayans spoof. He says in
his film, the "playroom" will probably
be something like "chartreuse or
turquoise or some ugly random color."
Vikander, Harington star in
period drama Testament of Youth
will be shady and a bad lover
Marlon Waynans has become known for his spoof films.
than looking at myself. I think it s because you re
kind of used to seeing so many images of yourself
today with photos and things. The first time (watch-
ing), you re always hard on yourself. I think most
actors are. But also you have so many memories. I
think of everything else, about the take or what hap-
pened that day.
Harington: I think you get better the more you
(see), but I think if you care about your work then
you ll be picking it apart. (AP)
